hagerstown. we're goingbegin to get showers in here primarily in northwestern maryland. the focus will shift to northeastern maryland extending to new york and boston as we go into tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow night. so twodifferent waves of concern here. the first weaker wave for us will be rain mixed with sleet and maybe wet flakes, especially north and west of baltimore. that's where we think we'll see wintry showers. . >> things will change again, watch the timing. this is 8:00 tomorrow morning, rain over the eastern shore, some of that mixing along the chesapeake. aswith we go from tomorrow morning into tomorrow afternoon, that storm ramping up, moving north and east of us, but the snow beginning to wrap around the backside of the system and we think the more
11:20 pm
significant accumulations will cut off in the northeastern corner of the state. this will occur primarily tomorrow after 6:00 into 6:00 a.m. saturday morning. the key snow window is going to be from about 6:00 tomorrow night until 6:00 saturday morning. this is going to clear out quickly on saturday and leave us with windy cold weather with. two different systems set to merge and ramp up as they move off the maryland coast. sohere's the set up as we look from friday into saturday, business ardz conditions for boston, new england, philadelphia, even there could receive significant snows, over a half a foot, maybe up to a foot. then we have that cut off with rain mixed with snow across maryland and for the northeastern corner of the state, while we'll see nowhere
